In the lead-up to the Sunday Night Football game this past weekend between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, TSN premiered My Brothers Keeper, a moving TSN Original Feature focusing on Ravens lineman Maake Kemoeatu, who made the decision to retire from the NFL before this season in order to donate a kidney to his ailing younger brother Chris, who is himself a two-time Super Bowl champion with the Steelers. For TSN Front Row, we asked TSN Original Feature director Matt Dunn to recount his uniquely personal story of how My Brothers Keeper came to be. Heres what he told us: Some feature ideas come easy, some dont. This story struck me like a lightning bolt, and when it was complete I would be emotionally drained but entirely grateful for the experience. You see, I had a personal connection to the subject matter… In the winter of 2012, my wife and I learned that our second son, Charlie, then only a few months old, would need a kidney transplant at some point in the future. I dont really recall the words coming out of the doctors mouth, but I do recall other details of the moment: the room at Torontos Sick Kids hospital, the colour of the doctors sweater, the silence of my wifes reaction as tears began to roll down her cheeks, and the doctor appearing overwhelmed and leaving quickly. She was young and clearly didnt have much experience at breaking news like this to families. So this past September, when I read the headline on the NFLs Twitter account, Former Ravens DT retired in order to donate kidney to brother, I was immediately invested, and became determined to share this story. I wanted to explore the emotional dynamic between the brothers, and I knew the arc of the story would be their awareness of the stakes before the transplant surgery. The brothers agreed to allow TSN to tell their story, and when I arrived in Baltimore with the TSN camera crew, we were greeted warmly by the Kemoeatu family at a rental home. Maake, the kidney donor, Chris, the kidney recipient, and their brother Benji were in the midst of moving back to Hawaii where they own a gym and operate a foundation. The walls were empty, the furniture was limited, and they had a lot on their plate. Especially Chris, who was moving and speaking slowly, his body still adjusting to the new organ functioning within. But they gave me their full attention and then some. Upon learning that my son would need a kidney, the brothers wanted to know more and were happy to answer any questions I had before, after, and during the interview. The same went for Dr. Bartlett, the surgeon at the University of Maryland Medical Centre who oversaw the transplant surgery. He turned off his frequently buzzing cell phone to answer my questions about donor waiting lists, the chances of any individual finding a living donor match, and anything else I could squeeze in. When our plane lifted off, I knew we had the story we wanted to tell. I was hopeful the story would inspire Canadians to register to become organ donors. But I was also moved personally: I felt more optimistic about my sons future, and I felt less alone. Upon parting ways with the brothers, there was one more special moment. Maake, the eldest of seven siblings who gave his brother the gift of life, shook my hand and looked squarely into my eyes. Both of us having shared our stories with each other, I felt the strength and compassion in his gaze, like he wanted me to feel a little safer, a little more secure. And I did. I still do.

They say Russia isnt doing enough to assure that athletes will be protected at the Feb. 7-23 games, happening not far from an Islamic insurgency that Russias huge security apparatus has struggled for two decades to quell. Russia may run greater risks in towns outside the tightly controlled Olympic zone. Suicide bombs last month a few hundred kilometres (miles) away have increased concerns, and an Islamic warlord has urged his followers to attack the Sochi Olympics, Russian President Vladimir Putins pet project.

ESPN and NFL.com have reported that the Bears are set to hire Fox, who left the Denver Broncos on Monday after four seasons at the helm. He interviewed with the Bears on Wednesday. Fox had a regular-season record of 46-18 with four AFC West titles during his successful tenure with Denver, taking the Broncos to the Super Bowl last season. After the Broncos were dispatched by Indianapolis in the divisional round of the playoffs last Sunday, Denver president of football operations John Elway said he and Fox decided to mutually part ways because they differed on how to progress into thee future.dddddddddddd The Bears have been in the market for a new coach since Marc Trestman was fired the day after the regular season ended in December. Trestman was 13-19 in his two years, including 5-11 in 2014. Chicago also has a new general manager in Ryan Pace, who took over after Phil Emery was fired on the same day as Trestman. Fox also spent nine years as head coach of the Carolina Panthers, leading them to an NFC title in 2003 and a 73-71 record. His contract was not renewed following the 2010 season, and he was hired by the Broncos within two weeks. The Bears have not hired a coach with previous NFL head coaching experience since Paddy Driscoll in 1956.
